Critics called it a masterpiece — both timely and avant-garde: "Exactly what you might expect from such a teaming: a wildly imaginative, unabashedly geeky concept album," said AllMusic.com. "It’s not only one of the best albums in either of their catalogs, but one of the best to come out of the new underground, period." Pitchfork called Nakamura the "poet laureate of creepy, oppressive beats," describing the album as an "exciting" reimagining of "the future from the bottom up" that reveals Del as a "surprisingly acute social critic." Now, over a decade later, they’re finally releasing the long-awaited followup to their debut — an album titled Event II. "This record took 13 years, and the whole time fans are telling us we better come out with Deltron right now — quit teasing me," says Del. "Well, this is beyond a regular album. Because I would say, me, Dan and Koala, we aren't limited by what other rap groups do - we're musicians first.
I studied music theory for ten years. Dan and Koala been learning music since they were kids. We're bringing it all together here, everything, and the fans, the critics, they all going to be surprised by what we got. You'll see.
When it comes out, if you got the money, you’re going to wanna go buy it." Or, as Nakamura puts it: "There isn’t another record that’s like this — it’s different from anything else I’ve done and anything else that’s out there. This is going to sound incredibly pompous, but to me, this is the greatest rap record of all time." Read more on Last.fm.
